Austin Bergstrom International Airport, fondly referred to as ABIA (which, as it would happen, is not the airport code), is not all that different from Austin, Texas. For being frequently visited and widely recognized, it is much smaller and more quaint that you might initially expect. This is an airport that tailors exclusively to local shops and restaurants - the emerald green of the Starbucks siren and the McDonald's golden arches are nowhere to be found here. Instead, you'll find a well-selected assortment of Tex-Mex joints, hand-spun ice cream shops, and not one, not two, but six live music venues. And best of all? You don't have to take a bus to pick up your Austin rental car - the lot is right on the premises. If you've got time to kill, check out some on the things that make ABIA supremely special.
